Turtle Wax

Afternoon all,

Here is a tech I have not visited in a while, but one which I will be teaching tomorrow. The waxed paper technique is so very simple and is really pretty. It is also about the only time I like to iron! The longest part of this card was the colouring of the Whipper Snapper image.

Stamps: Whipper Snapper CY882 Turtle and Frog, SU Taggers Dozen Inks: Kaleidacolour Carribbean Sea, Archival Jet Black Cardstock: Bazzill, White Gloss Other: Ribbon, Silver Cord, Large Black Brads, DSFT, Prisma Colour Pencils, Odourless Mineral Solvent

That looks really cool! No ironing for me {ever}. I love the ribbon and the brads, too. It's a great card. I'm going to go Nesties crazy someday and go buy a ton of them!!!
